Music of the Knights
Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber, Sir Elton John and Sir Paul McCartney have much in common: they are all British-born, they all have an Academy Award, they all have multiple Grammy Awards and they are all knights. They also happen to be three of the most successful songwriters of all time with careers that span decades. Their catalogue of hits comes alive in this dynamic musical revue performed by Broadway and pop vocalists. The concert honors their lasting musical influence with songs like “Memory,” “I Don’t Know How to Love Him,” “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina,” “The Phantom of the Opera,” “Circle of Life,” “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” “Your Song,” “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me,” “Yesterday,” “Hey Jude” and many more.
